Session Details
The prevalence of online attacks against websites has accelerated quickly recently and the same risks continue to be exploited. However, these are often easily identified directly within the browser; it’s just a matter of understanding the vulnerable patterns to look for.
'Hack Yourself First' is all about developers building up cyber-offence skills and proactively seeking out security vulnerabilities in their own websites before an attacker does. It recognises that we have huge volumes of existing websites that haven’t gone through sufficient security review plus we continue to create new content that even when built with security in mind, still needs testing from the perspective of a cybercriminal.
In this session we’ll look at website security from the attacker’s perspective and exploit common risks in a vulnerable web application. We’ll also explore ways to easily grab credit cards, gain immediate FTP access to thousands of websites and even look at how your toilet can be pwned.

Troy Hunt is an Aussie Developer Security MVP specialising in web security and working to help developers learn their XSS from their CSRF from their XFO. He’s a frequent blogger at, the author of the free eBook “OWASP Top 10 for .NET developers” and regular conference speaker. Most recently he’s completed another Pluralsight course “Hack Yourself First: How to go on the Cyber-Offence” where Troy intends to turn web developers of all kinds into self-hacking machines!
Troy is also the creator of “Have I been pwned?”, the free online tool to search for compromised accounts across a whole range of public data breaches. This is a project built from the ground up on “The Power of Cloud” courtesy of Windows Azure and it handles hundreds of millions of breached accounts searched by millions of people since its December 2013 launch.
